The time has come. I am traveling to ARGENTINA! This is my first “boots on the ground” trips to there. And boots on the ground it will be, for a large portion of the trip. While Argentina holds many urban wonders, it is to the countryside I am headed. Argentina bursts with gorgeous natural wonders, and this time I am headed to the northwest of the country, to explore the mountainous area around Salta. Founded in 1582, Salta is a provincial capital known for its Spanish colonial architecture and Andean heritage. Parque Nacional Los Cardones, Salta, Argentina. Photo by Nicolas Prieto on Unsplash

Achieving the Perfect Vacation of Your Dreams, a Personal Story

young woman raising her arms in the air, celebrating the perfect vacation of her lifetimeAre you ready to go on your perfect vacation? Today’s world of info-gathering is at our fingertips.
